Our barristers have significant experience acting on behalf of clients involved in the energy sector.
They combine expert knowledge of energy issues with expertise in commercial law, planning, infrastructure, environmental law, and property, to offer clients practical and comprehensive advice and representation.

Our barristers can also advise on issues such as financing and procurement, as well as broader regulatory issues such as health and safety.
